YiYO brings family and friends together around the dinner table or at a board game cafe to take the ultimate lifestyle challenge. Players must use self-discipline, clever strategies, mathematical skill and a little bit of luck to negotiate a day of food and exercise choices – with a few lifestyle roadblocks thrown in to keep it real.
To win the game, players need to fulfil their minimum fruit, vegetable and water requirements, and achieve the closest possible balance of energy in (Yi) to energy out (YO). Along the way, players find out about their own energy needs and gain surprising new insights into the energy ‘load’ of a huge variety of foods and physical activities.
Players learn about estimated energy requirement (EER), basal metabolic rate (BMR) and personal activity level (PAL), and how these metrics can be used to better understand their metabolic processes.
The Yi cards contain an international range of raw ingredients, home cooked meals, processed and fast foods.
The YO cards include a variety of team sports, individual exercises and incidental activities such as using the stairs and doing chores.
The WATER quiz cards bring an environmental aspect to the game and highlight the importance of adequate hydration as part of a healthy lifestyle.
The CHANCE cards represent those little lifestyle conundrums that threaten to put your healthy plans off track.
A team of accredited Dietitians and Diabetes Educators collaborated on the development of YiYO. The population data is based on international clinical standards, and the energy values are derived from reputable online sources cross referenced with supermarket surveys.
All YiYO players have FREE access to the Metabolic Symphony Lifestyle Education Library.
NOTE: YiYO can be played using kilojoules or Calories. The game uses metric units for nutrition information i.e. grams.
